SitePal Embed Overlay is Here!
We introduced the new embed overlay option, which can be configured to allow page owners and page visitors more control. When preparing to publish your SitePal, you can preview your webpage and position your avatar anywhere over the page. There is no longer any need to modify your web page to make room for your SitePal avatar. Because the Avatar can appear on top of the page!

Multiple options allow you to set the absolute or relative location of your SitePal to the page. This provides great flexibility without requiring users to be tech savvy. The embed overlay option can be configured to allow page owners and page visitors more control. For example, visitors can be allowed to move the avatar anywhere over the page, or minimize it if they prefer. To keep users engaged, the SitePal character may appear as the page loads, or may be configured to wait and appear only after the user has spent some time on the page.

Try it out now, by publishing your show, selecting “Embed in a Web Page” and choosing the Overlay option.

SitePal Tips and Tricks

Increase Audio Limit
Have you ever wanted your SitePal avatar to say more? Currently the text limit is 900 characters, and recorded audios cannot be longer than 90 sec. You can however string together multiple audios for consecutive playback. All you have to do is break the audio into chunks and use our API to speak them in sequence. This method allows your SitePal to speak any length of audio. Check out the examples to the right.

Embed SitePal avatars on PowerPoint 2013
SitePal users can easily embed SitePal avatars to their PowerPoint presentation. All users have to do is to download and install the SitePal Add-in for PowerPoint. After installing the SitePal add-in, just simply click on it and log into to your SitePal account and insert the Scene that you want. See below for the SitePal add-in and the user guide:

Build Your Own FAQ Solution in HTML
Though we offer FAQ Players to allow your SitePal avatar to respond to user’s questions, some folks would like to design their own FAQ implementation. Doing so provides more design flexibility, and also allows using non-Roman characters currently unsupported by our FAQ Players (i.e., Mandarin, Japanese, Korean characters). Check out our example.
